The Spina Bifida statistics for Wisconsin are as follows: About 2.60 babies out of 10,000 births are born with this medical problem. The data was collected during the years 2001-2005. The data shows an increase in the number of babies born with this disability when compared to previous data.
Around 1,463 people who have SB are residing in the state. Our research has shown that 1.7 million women are due to give birth and at some risk of delivering babies affected with this medical condition. The number of people of Hispanic origin in the state is 5 percent of the population which equals 281,000 (Hispanic women are at higher risk of SB than non-Hispanic races).
There are three Spina Bifida clinics, hospitals and doctors in the state. They can be found at LaCrosse, Milwaukee, and Madison. The clinic at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin is the registry point for patients affected with SB. The SB Association of Wisconsin is responsible for providing help and support services in the state.
Through our content we want to empower the lives of people with SB and to promote the prevention of it through education, public awareness and research. Working together with local organizations we aim to enhance the lives of those who are affected with SB. We want to build a stronger community and create a better future for those with SB.
